It was DEEP today. Absolutely full of crabgrass and he told me it has not been cut in a little over 3 weeks. I cut it at 4 3/4 and took my time. Took me 1hr and 10 minutes. Another 1 to 2 cuts and I will have it down to a normal height and will be able to blast through it in 35 to 40 minutes. He said his neighbor will probably have us start on her lawn soon.

Holy crap. I just picked up a $40 weekly cut with a grass area that would completely fit in that driveway.

It's not just "regional" either. It varies within "cities" as well.
That $40 job I just mentioned would be a $20 job just a few blocks away.
